Yes! I found Naem (nam) at south Tampa's DoBond Market in the tofu cooler! This raw, fermented pork belly and rice dish has been made in Thailand for centuries before refrigeration so today I bought two. The owner is an older Vietnamese man with a thick accent that like the Thais, he also prefers to eat it raw from the package with a bit of the enclosed hot pepper. Like the websites, he said with affection that it has a very distinctive sour taste that he loves. It is LOADED with sodium, so I will just try one bite.
